The work, edited by Nicolay and Hay, was then "extra illustrated with letters, state documents and rare engravings" by the Anglo-American Authors' Association. Printed on Japanese vellum with tipped in letters, documents and other illustrations, each volume has a manuscript title page, initials in red and decorations in gold, green leather cover with gilded pages and hand-painted insets inside the front and back cover. The library does not own Volume 5 Part 1.
